A 29 gal should be too hard to move. Make sure the tank is empty before you move it. Don't want it to crack. Good luck...Lando

I would separate the sand/substrate, fish, rock and corals in different containers. Then save as much if not all your water and then place it all back in when you get to the new location.

The only thing I can add to the good suggestions is to move it in the am. living in texas it must get hot in the middle of the day. Try to move before it gets to hot.

u dont think he would be ok leaving the sand and about a 1/2 inch of water in the tank being that it is only a 30 gal and isnt extremely long?
